Another total shutdown protest was going to take place this Thursday 29th August, this time predominantly in the southern suburbs. The leader and national spokesperson of civic organization Gatvol Capetonian, Fadiel Adams, said this has been delayed due to the meeting with Litha Jolobe National Deputy Minister of Human Settlements and delegations from the national departments of Co-operative Governance and Public Works at the Castle this Thursday.
Litha Jolobe agreed to have a backyarder summit as soon as possible to move this critical issue on the Cape Flats onto the national agenda, after the August 8 total shutdown protest across Cape Town communities. The total shutdown movement highlights the mass of people living in backyards, pleading for access to land and housing.
